Talking Justice 2014-2017

In only four years, Talking Justice has become a feature event during Law Week. Over the last four years our speakers have ranged over topics as diverse as public health policy to refugees, social justice and the creative process, the environment, crime and punishment and sexuality. And we’ve brought some of Australia’s finest speakers with a range of perspectives to Bendigo to explore what we mean by justice, from Raimond Gaita to Eva Cox, Mick Dodson, Clementine Ford, Father Frank Brennan, Antoinette Braybrook, Julian Burnside, Helen Zsoke, Shane Howard, Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa and Tim Costello.
